Offseason rumor talk

45 posts in this topic

Post any offseason rumors you have for the Twins here.

I heard something that the Twins are interested in Orlando Cabrera? Great player, and he would definitely improve us, but doesn't he have a bad attitude?

Griffey Jr was cut by the Sux, would make a decent everyday DH, imho.

hes way to old and falling apart

Can still hit 25+ HRs a year. As a DH ONLY I said. Don't put him in the OF, thats an injury waiting to happen

He's left handed. We need a right handed power hitter. I know it will never happen but Manny would be nice.

I have heard talk of Garret Atkins and Adrian Beltre via the trade market or the signing of Casey Blake via free agency

Heard this morning that the Rangers plan to pick up about a $13 million option on Blalock but they're not sure where he'll play. My guess is DL and Round Rock.

I've heard rumors of Casey Blake and Orlando Cabrera. Blake makes some sense if the price is right but don't really understand Cabrera given the number of infielders we have already but that might be contingent on what happens with Punto.

I can't imagine any scenario where the signing of a player would depend on Punto unless the signed player requires Punto to carry his supporter.

lol. well you've got to remember we are talking the twins and low budget here and I'm sure they are going to do what they can to re-sign him and if they do, it wouldn't seem that they need another player that can play ss. they won't re-sign punto with the idea that he's going to be riding the pine.

I'd take that deal. Where else we going to stick Cuddy? At third as well? I'll take Atkins offense over Cuddyer's.

today I heard Delmon Young to SD for Kevin Kazmanoff (not positive of spelling). I think I like the Cuddy/Atkins rumor better than this one though if they are going to acquire a new 3b.

It's Kevin Kouzmanoff. I'd rather take the Cuddyer for Atkins trade. Atkins is a better offensive threat. I guess I'm not sure how Kouz is on the defensive side, but Atkins holds his own.

Delmon Young has too much potential, and I feel he'll play at Cuddyer's level next year, or maybe better.

I am all for giving Young one more season, as long as his defense improves, and I would like to see 20+ HRs as well. If he continues misplaying pop flies, trade him.

Agreeable. I just think last year was his year to get used to playing left field in that nasty Metrodome.

8 errors at a new position, its not good, but he did have 11 assists.

garrett atkins WOULD BE HUGE for us, I just hope that someone else doesnt snap him up first.

Hes a big solid player

298 career hitter 100+ rbi guy 20 jacks

good fielder

Right handed hitter

Cuddy is the odd man out

He may have only had 8 errors, but he misplayed a ton of balls, and they didn't count as errors. But like I said, one more year, see if he can pop out 20 or HRs

    • can someone answer my this/ bow fishing isnt open yet is it??????????? i believe it maybe from or on rivers but not lakes???????   i could of swore i seen a rig out potentially bowfishing last nite. this boat was lit up like no tomorrow along the shoreline of an open water lake.........well techniqially a bake water of a river!!!!!!
    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
